by Cristian_Uluru
 
 

Akureyrarkirkja was plan by Gudj˛n Sam¨elsson, the same architect that bilt Hallgrimskirkja in Reykjavik. It was bilt in 1940 and inside its there is a nice organ with 3200 pipes and some graving about the life of Christ. The central main window was in Coventry Cathedral in England. The angel near the altar is by the Danish Bertel Thorvaldsen. The ship that is on the roof remember the protection for sailor that are in sea.

Address: Eyrarlandsvegur street, Akureyri
